My name is Matt Wilson, and I'm under fairly significant debt pressure. Not from credit cards, or car payments or mortgages. No, my debts are academic in nature — I owe close to $54,000 in student loans.

In 2007, I attended an expensive private school in an attempt to receive a Bachelor of Science in software development.

    I can't imagine a parent, teacher (h/s or college) or a Guidance Counselor (h/s or college) who would encourage a child to assume $54,000 in debt.

    Hummm...why?

    Teachers in college are paid by student's tuition. Students pay their tuition mainly by student loans. Many teachers would be unemployed if it were not for students that obligate themselves to these educational loans....

    Given the above, I could easily imagine a teacher encouraging a student to incur debt.

    I can't imagine a parent, teacher (h/s or college) or a Guidance Counselor (h/s or college) who would encourage a child to assume $54,000 in debt. Did he expect to become partners with Bill Gates? There hasn't been this much mass delusion since Jonestown... pass the purple Kool Aid.
